One of 129 World War I photographs likely to have been taken by Driver Cyril Rose, AIF. Rose was made a driver in the 1st Australian Auxiliary Mechanical Transport Company before moving to the 2nd Australian Divisional Mechanical Transport Company when in France. He sailed from Melbourne on 22 December 1916 on the Persic, arriving in England in March 1917. In June he was sent to France where his service consisted of driving in a supply column. He returned to Australia on the Persic on 13 July 1919.

A majority of the images included in the album appear to be from the time Rose spent in England, particularly Wiltshire, before he travelled to France. The album also includes images of servicemen, battle sites, buildings and Cologne, Germany.

Image depicts an unidentified serviceman in a rickshaw, pulled by a man in indigenous clothing and large headdress.
